Homo sapiens C/D box snoRNA U26. This snoRNA was initially characterized as a conserved intronic sequence in the U22 host gene, UGH. Other introns of the same gene host the C/D box snoRNAs U25-U31 (Tycowski, Shu and Steitz, 1996). U26 was postulated to guide the 2'O-ribose methylation of 28S rRNA A389 by Kiss-Laszlo et al. (1996), although this 2'O-methylated base was not mapped by Maden (1990).
